"A wonderful story." --Rosamunde Pilcher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Shell Seekers "Grey's engaging, poignant, and romantic debut treats readers to an absorbing story within a story. Her detailed narrative chronicles the lives of these intriguing characters while fluidly travelling from past to present. The author's subtle depictions to social and moral intolerances of the past and the gentle hand of fate that guides this tale makes her novel an excellent choice for fans of Beatrice Williams (Overseas; A Hundred Summers), Jon Clinch (The Thief of Auschwitz), and Kristina McMorris (Bridge of Scarlet Leaves)." --Library Journal, starred review "Letters to the Lost is a powerful debut, one of those rare books that grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go. It's a heart-wrenching, smile-through-the-tears story of love lost and refound - you won't be able to put it down!" --Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author of The Ashford Affair "Letters to the Lost pulsates with life, offering a vibrant love story that transcends time and the heartbreak of war.
